What is TYG?
Our drink is specifically designed to support optimal gut health. We’ve crafted a drink that contains well-known ingredients like BCAAs and combined them with cutting-edge probiotics and other functional ingredients, recognizing the gut is key to general wellbeing. We have explicitly chosen to avoid using artificial sweeteners, flavours and preservatives as we believe a more natural approach is better for the gut. Gut issue can affect 50% of athletes and given the gut is said to represent almost 70% of the immune system, and is estimated to produce 90% of the body's serotonin (the happy hormone), it’s fair to say it’s pivotal to general wellbeing.
When should I drink TYG?
We recommend drinking TYG cold post workout.
How regularly should I drink TYG?
We recommend having a can of TYG daily, to support optimal gut health. Gut health is all about creating healthy sustainable habits as the goal is to maintain a well balanced gut microbiome, with optimal levels of good bacteria.
What’s new about TYG?
TYG, previously known as Biome is a new improved recipe. We’ve added essential vitamins to further support your immune system, such as vitamin C and a range of B Vitamins
I'm an athlete/sports professional, can I drink TYG?
Yes, we only use the highest quality ingredients in our product and it is Informed Sports certified, meaning it has been anti-doping tested and safe for athletes of all levels to consume.
I already drink kombucha, what’s the difference?
Kombucha is fermented and contains probiotics however the strain of probiotic found in kombucha is not native to the gut microbiome therefore you will not be replacing any good bacteria that you are missing. The strain in TYG is native to the gut and is called bacillus coagulans.
I already take probiotics, can I also drink TYG?
Yes, there are lots of different strains of probiotics and getting a mix is generally recommended.
Is TYG an energy drink?
Whilst there are no energy yielding ingredients in TYG, how well you absorb nutrients is dependent on having good gut health so in that sense, by supporting optimal gut health you are supporting your body’s natural energy production.

How was TYG started?
Having experienced years of gut health issues and struggling to find a sports drink that didn't just worsen her symptoms, our founder Aoife Morrin, decided to take a holistic approach & create something new. The future of sports drinks is here! "Gone are the days of sugary sports drinks. This is not what our body needs, and anyway, there is a societal need to reduce sugar in the diet. A sports drink needs to refresh you and offer you some form of muscle support. But we’ve taken that one step further. A healthy gut sits at the heart of how our body functions; both mentally and physically. If you are not healthy, you can’t perform. We are providing a drink to help you prepare and perform for your sport and exercise goals. That is a true sports drink."

What are probiotics?
Probiotics are good bacteria. We have a mix of both good and bad bacteria in our gut microbiome and the goal for optimal gut health is to maintain a healthy balance. We can do that by introducing and supporting the growth of the good bacteria which can be done by consuming both probiotics and prebiotics. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria and are found in food sources such as green apples, bananas and oats.
What probiotics are used in TYG?
The strain of probiotic used is called Bacillus Coagulan. The strain we use is naturally encapsulated which means it reaches the gut alive and can withstand stomach acids and the manufacturing process. There are more than 2 billion CFUs per can, this is the same level as the dose used in the in vivo and in vitro tests done on it. The results demonstrated efficacy in reducing IBS-like symptoms.*

What's special about the probiotics used in TYG?
The probiotics we use are naturally encapsulated, which means they withstand stomach acid and actually reach the gut alive!
How long does it take for probiotic supplements to work?
The short answer: It depends. There are several factors that come into play, like why you're taking the probiotic, the state of your health, and the strains you're taking, to name a few. That being said, researchers have looked at the timeline for several common conditions that probiotics are known to support and found some similarities. If you put all the research together, the general consensus is that it can take anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks for your probiotic to start working.
What are natural flavours?
Our natural flavours are oils, essence and extracts from natural sources, such as spices, fruit, plants or vegetables.
What sweetener is used in TYG?
We use stevia to sweeten TYG because it’s natural, which we believe is better for the gut than artificial sweeteners and sugar. Stevia also does not elevate blood sugar levels which we believe is a key factor in achieving optimal health. There is only a small amount of stevia used in the drink (across all flavours) and therefore it is officially classified as low sugar drink.
Why do you use natural flavours?
We wanted our drink to have what we believe are key functional elements to support optimal gut health AND taste great. When you open a can of TYG, it should taste and smell the same every time, and natural flavours help make that happen.
hy do you use citric acid, ascorbic acid and malic acid in your drinks?
We use a combination of different acids to help us keep the drink stable. Some random acid facts for you: • Did you know ascorbic acid is another name for Vitamin C? • Citric acid is a weak organic acid, that naturally occurs in citrus fruit. • Malic acid is an organic compound, which occurs naturally in all fruits & many vegetables.
